How to Prepare for Minimally Invasive Gynecological Surgery

OB-GYN doctors keep women healthy by performing checkups and procedures to ensure the proper function of their reproductive systems. When abnormalities are found in the cervix, vagina, uterus, or ovaries, surgery is sometimes required to treat the underlying cause. Fortunately, many gynecological procedures can be performed using minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery can sometimes be performed through the vaginal opening and cervix, eliminating the need for incisions. In other cases, a small incision can be made in the abdomen so surgeries can be performed laparoscopically.
